Welcome to the Crime Victims Helpline

Crime Victims Helpline (CVH) has appointed RF Associates to conduct an evaluation of our services. The aim of the evaluation is to see how our services can be improved. If you have contacted us over the phone, email or text, please consider taking part in this anonymous and confidential survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/crimevictimshelpline 

We offer support to all victims of crime in Ireland. Established in 2005, our aim is to support, inform and empower victims of crime and all those impacted by crime.

We are here to listen. We will give you time and space to talk about your experience. We can provide you with information about the criminal justice system and referrals to other resources in your community that may be able to help.

Please share this warning with elderly family members and neighbours. Gardaí are advising people to be vigilant and suspicious of any calls or voicemails from people claiming to represent a company or organisation you may be a customer of. The caller may have some information about you, so don’t trust them just because they use your name or other personal information. In recent weeks, a number of people have fallen victim to this scam. In counties Wicklow and Tipperary two individuals fell victim to the scam and purchased in excess of €1,000 of vouchers. In Co. Galway another victim was scammed out of €2,200. In Dublin, one person attempted to purchase €1,000 in iTunes gift cards at a supermarket, before a member of staff became suspicious and contacted Gardaí. No company will request payment via iTunes or any other online vouchers. If you receive a call like this, end the call and contact Gardaí.
